A wonderful place to visit at any time of the year. A lovely stretch of unspoilt Leicestershire countryside little changed in over 600 years. The visitors centre is most informative and the adjacent tearoom is a good place to have some welcome refreshment before walking...More

This place is always a pleasure to visit. The walks and the ruins are brilliant. I always enjoy visiting this place and its brilliant for families to explore with their children.

This place is beautiful. Really great walk. Beautiful views. Lovely to walk around the ruins. We saw the deer from afar. The dogs loved it. Plenty of bins for rubbish. Ducks and swans everywhere. Perfect place to give the fluffs a good run out.

Hiya, always pay and display and never encountered an issue myself. If your ticket hadn't expired why not challenge the issuers? Suggest better to settle first though!
